Live Tv + Change Channel Solution?
Posted 02 January 2009 - 09:55 AM
I've tried Sage TV and a couple others to no avail. I'm at the point of considering installing linux and mythtv server on my fileserver. However, this will be a PITA since setting up printers that are shared over a network is a pain in linux (and the fileserver is also my printserver).......plus I don't even know if it will work. I'm sure I can stream like that but will I be able to browse the channels relatively fluently?
This is the last remaining obstacle to me ever having to switch video input from my Xbox. As is, I use XBMC for every single thing I do as far as home entertainment, EXCEPT watch livetv. To do that I have to change my tv input from xbox to cable. Granted, it is only a couple button presses.......but I would much prefer it through XBMC.
Also, since I get notified of emails, phone calls/caller id, etc etc.....I would prefer to always have XBMC open.
If anyone has any currently working methods for this, PLEASE let me know as I've been searching for a few months now without success.

Last time around I was using a python script (JTV I think it was) involved having J-Player or something like that on the PC which would use your DTV card and the script effectively controlled it and allowed you to tune in etc from XBMC.
Main problem was it was pretty clunky and slow with channel changes etc.
I was looking for the actual windows media center dash for xbox which i believe was released by msoft late in the piece, as this should work fine for live tv i would hope (it does on 360)
